THE RECIPES
Salmon with Swiss Chard, Cherry Tomatoes and Corn by @jakecohen

Summer on a plate! Shuck all of your corn and remove it from the cob now so you can reserve half for later in the week.

Feedfeed Tip When searing salmon, we like to start "presentation side down" (or skin side up) to get a nice golden brown crust on the flesh. Be sure to season your salmon well and don't flip the fish until it can move freely in the pan without a struggle.
Blackened Shrimp And Chicken Cobb Salad With Dijon Vinaigrette by @the.colors.of.yum

Now that's a salad! Be sure to cook all of your chicken tonight so you can use some later in the week.

Feedfeed Tip When making homemade dressing, we like to layer all of the ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Give it a shake and you'll have the perfectly blended vinaigrette!
 
 
Quinoa Tabbouleh Avocado Boats with Spicy Tahini by @crowded_kitchen

This hearty meatless dish is the perfect easy dinner for a warm spring evening! 

GET 50+ AVOCADO RECIPES >

Feedfeed Tip To keep the cut avocados from browning, rub the cut side with lemon or lime juice.

Feedfeed Tip For more flavorful grits, you could replace the cooking liquid with chicken stock or up the umami factor by tossing a parmesan rind into the cooking water.
Prosciutto Wrapped Green Beans and Asparagus with Walnut Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto by @phoebelapine

After the vegetables get a quick blanch, there is no further cooking required for these flavorful little bundles! Double up on the pesto and store it in the fridge for tomorrow!

GET 50+ PESTO RECIPES >

Feedfeed Tip Using walnuts instead of traditional (and expensive!) pine nuts is a great way to keep the cost of making pesto at home down. 
 
Weekend Bonus
Grilled Pizza with Pesto and Roasted Tomatoes by @lastingredient

We included the ingredients for homemade dough in the shopping list, but if you are short on time just pick up store bought pizza dough.
